Mario Party

For fans of the Super Mario series, a Mario Party theme is a no-brainer. Decorate with Mario and Luigi decorations, have a Mario-themed cake, and set up various mini-games inspired by the series (such as mushroom races or a scavenger hunt for star coins).

Minecraft Video Game Party

For kids who can’t get enough of the blocky world of Minecraft, a Minecraft-themed party is the way to go. Set up a “crafting station” where kids can make their own Minecraft-inspired creations, and have a “hunger games” style challenge in the backyard.
